Right On! The Lennon Years, Photographs by Susan Wood 1968 to 1978

This unique exhibition will be on view from 8 August through 18 October on weekends: Saturday, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Sunday, noon - 5 p.m.

Photographer Susan Wood captures a decade of time through a retrospective exhibition of photographs, from the vibe on the street to icons in the arts, music, fashion, literature, and politics, the impact of which molded a generation.  Wood’s candid style tells the story of the times — the changing times — in a visual narrative that distills the mood of an era in American history.  Presented by the East Hampton Historical Society and curated by Irish photographer Deirdre Brennan.

Every object tells a story . . . Fascinating Highlights from Our Collection

3 July through 12 October

The Historical Society has collected over 10,000 objects since it was founded in 1921. Even though we have hundreds of objects displayed in our six museum buildings, much of the collection is safely stored in a study facility. Why not examine the collection and choose just 99 items that, put together, create a story about our town that includes both important and sometimes eccentric things that together generate a very interesting picture of 350 years of East Hampton.
